The Abubakar Shekau-led faction of Boko Haram has released a video of the abducted Kankara schoolboys, confirming that it has custody of the students.
The students were abducted at the Government Science Secondary School Kankara, Katsina State, last Friday.
The six minutes and 30 seconds video confirmed that the students were abducted by the dreaded terror group.
The video which was released on Thursday, featured one of the schoolboys looking distressed and bloodied.
The rest of the students could be seen behind him, as he spoke in both Hausa and English.
The boy begged the Federal Government to rescue them from the abductors and warned against the use of military force in rescuing them.
